Here in Alaska earlier today Ron Paul was interviewed on news radio AM 750 KFQD, this morning between 10:05 and 10:25 am. I called in and — as the very first question put to Ron Paul during the broadcast — asked him: “Dr. Paul, Congressman Dennis Kucinich just announced he is dropping out of the presidential contest, so you will be the lone candidate remaining in the race who is not corporately funded. On Feb. 5th here in Alaska all those people who were intending to caucus for Kucinich would like to still be able to caucus for a candidate who is not corporately funded, upholds the constitution, and opposes oil wars. You and congressmen Kucinich agree on many significant issues. So, my question is, in a Ron Paul presidential administration would an invitation be extended to Dennis Kucinich for him to fill a cabinet level position?”
I just listened to the KFQD podcast and transcribed exactly that which Ron Paul said in reply to my question as to whether a cabinet-level position would be offered to Dennis Kucinich in a Ron Paul administration. Ron Paul said:”Yes, it would be. But, it would be, and, more in the foreign policy area than it would be, say, on economic issues. We’re good friends and we agree a lot – and we agree a lot even on the compromises. Because some of the economic and social programs we have here at home right on the top of my list, I also think we shouldn’t strike them before we strike the spending overseas. But he would be somebody that I would look to especially on foreign policy – and he’s good on civil liberties, too, you know, on personal liberties and privacy. So, there would be a lot of room to use somebody like Dennis.”
